Per ISOO Notice 2022-03,
the phase-out of all black label vault doors has been extended until 1 October 2035.
Federal agencies and contractors with black label vault doors must formulate a risk-based, cost effective plan to replace this security equipment within the new allocated time.
The AA-D-600D specification covers vault doors that are designed to conform to the minimum standards for physical security equipment as required by the
Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) Directive
governing the safeguarding of national security information.
The doors provide protection against unauthorized entry for the periods of time specified.
GSA-approved vault doors are not insulated.
At present, there are numerous GSA approved Class 5 security vault doors being used for the protection of AA&E.
If a failure occurs with an X-07, X-08 or X-09 lock on these doors, we strongly recommend that these locks be changed out to the FF-L-2937 mechanical combination lock.
When that change is made it must be noted on the
Optional Form 89
(Maintenance Record for Security Containers/Vault Doors).
A security vault door equipped with a FF-L-2937 mechanical lock is NOT authorized for the protection of classified information.
